Of the composers who inaugurated the renaissance of Italian instrumental music in the late nineteenth century, Luigi Mancinelli is probably the least well-known. Older than Martucci, Respighi and Casella, he was in the vanguard of that creative resurgence. As a conductor he was admired by Wagner and Verdi, and as a composer he wrote music of sophistication and style, such as the colourful and touching Scene veneziane (Scenes of Venice). The music for Cleopatra shows why, in its increased complexity, Mancinelli was admired for his orchestral mastery. Francesco La Vecchia was appointed Artistic Director and Resident Conductor of the Orchestra Sinfonica di Roma in 2002. The orchestra has rapidly achieved success in Europe under his leadership.

Mancinelli was one of the first of a line of composers, which included Sgambati, Martucci and Faccio who were determined to break away from opera's dominance in Italian musical life so recordings of these works are of real importance and I don't understand why Naxos presents it like this. Let's hope there'll be a second disc with the other 4 movements! The music is very very listenable and very well performed by La Vecchia and his band. Please consider they recorded much Casella and will certainly explore more Italian symphonists, but this disc, it's a confusing presentation.
